resolved reset the state for _mac_1_conversion

Recommended Posts

I installed GB North for X-Plane with no problems.

I tried to install both GB Central and GB South for X-Plane and got an error message about missing dds files that should be in the texture folder. Somehow my conversion of the texture files to dds was not 100% successful.

When I try to run the conversion again, it starts in terminal but then says it is complete.

The texture file still contains png versions of the missing dds files, so they were not converted.

How can I re-run the converter please?

sorry for my confusion. I downloaded the converter again and now it is converting those jpg files into what I do not know. I assumed we need the dds files, especially as that is the problem file type which is missing in my case. So does the converter make dds and png from jpg?

so do we need png files too?

Trying to understand the logic of whats going on. JPG I assume because they are small. DDS  preferred by X-Plane and I think it will use them in preference to a png if both are present.

So DDS is all we really need?

OK all is well so this topic can be closed.

Just to summarise from my experience on a Mac:

1) if the converter program gets stuck or fails in any way it refuses to rerun.

2) To rerun the converter, or start again you need to download it again (just the program).

3) When it has finished successfully I deleted the jpeg files manually

all runs nicely now. Very pleased customer :)
